Greater Zion Stadium, originally Hansen Stadium and later Trailblazer Stadium, is a stadium on the campus of Dixie State University in St. George, Utah.[2] It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field of the Dixie State Trailblazers football and soccer programs. The stadium holds 10,000 people. In 2002 and 2003, it hosted the Paradise Bowl which was a post season college football all-star game.

MLS soccer club Real Salt Lake played their first match at Hansen Stadium on March 29, 2007 versus the BYU soccer club which, at the time, played as a minor league professional club and not in a collegiate league. The belief is that Hansen Stadium will become the Southern Utah "home" stadium for RSL when visiting the area and practicing in warm weather environments in pre-season.

The stadium was most recently renamed on January 21, 2020 under an agreement between the university and Washington County, Utah, whose tourism promotion agency is branded as the Greater Zion Convention & Tourism Office.[3]
